Tori Amos has spent the past several years exploring other worlds of music. She released two albums of classical-inspired work, including a collection of her earlier pop songs retooled as orchestral tracks. Most recently she helped write a musical for the London National Theater. But this month Amos is back with Unrepentant Geraldines, a new album filled with her signature piano-driven baroque pop songs. On this week's All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton premiere "16 Shades Of Blue," a new cut from the album, and talk about why it's Amos' best record in 20 years.

Also on the show: Malaysian-born singer-songwriter Zee Avi covers The Velvet Underground song "Who Loves The Sun;" A new tribute album showcases some of the music featured in Wes Anderson's films, including a thumping cover of The Kinks' song "Nothing In This World Can Stop Me Worrying 'Bout That Girl;" and the Berlin and New York-based dream pop group Fenster is back with an atmospheric sophomore full-length called The Pink Caves. Plus: The captivating voice of singer Alice Boman and the Led Zeppelin-inspired rock of Milezo.
